Nobody wants to get a divorce, but sometimes, after you’ve given it your all to make it work, it’s just right for everyone. Although it’s a difficult time for all involved, sometimes the best thing to do is treat it as a new beginning, not an ending; put a positive spin on the situation if you can.
Recently, we’ve noticed a number of people doing just that, and to “celebrate” this fresh start, new divorcees are booking themselves a great big holiday to mark the occasion.
While the idea of a divorce-moon might sound strange to some, it could be the perfect way for you to get away from it all, recharge your batteries and come back to your life refreshed and ready to face the world again. Here are our tips for booking the perfect post-separation holiday.
Go somewhere you’ve never been before
Forget about the holiday resorts you always used to go to together, this is your chance to visit a new destination; maybe a city you’ve had on your bucket list for a while, or a new country entirely.
It can be somewhere on the other side of the world, or a few hours’ flying time away, as long as you travel to a place that will make you happy, it doesn’t matter where you go!
With experience in over 50 destinations, we are certain we can find you the ideal place for a holiday.
The beauty of travel is that it allows you to explore your adventurous side, and after a divorce this could be just what you need to kick off your fresh start.
Look at countries and places you would have never even considered when you were a couple; exotic destinations with cultures wildly different from your own, scenic trips with a focus on the great outdoors – the world is your oyster (sorry, but it’s true!).
Whether Southeast Asia catches your eye or a trip to India has really evoked your curiosity, we have experts for so many destinations that will take good care of you.
Know what you want
The key to any holiday is knowing what you want to get out of it beforehand; this is even more vital after something as life changing as a divorce. Think to yourself, “what helps me relax?” and go from there. You might be the type that needs the a long, sandy golden beach to unwind.
Perhaps a trip filled with jungle treks and rewarding hikes is more you. Maybe you want a combination, and that’s fine too. With us, you don’t have to just stick to one destination, you can try as many as you have time for.
Don’t limit yourself
Confining yourself to one place is a good way to leave you dwelling on the past, and that’s not what we want. With a multi-centre holiday, you can visit a number of different places and really immerse yourself in a new culture.
Our most popular trips include Thailand, Vietnam, the US and Malaysia, but we have so many more fantastic destinations on offer as well. We can also be flexible with the places you visit on holiday (as long as feasible travel options are available), so if there’s somewhere you really want to go on a trip, just ask and we’ll see what we can do.
Travel with friends
Good friends are essential for getting over any of life’s obstacles, so why not organise a big trip and go away with some of your nearest and dearest? Even if you only have a week to play with, you can still have a great time abroad
